The Lawsons: A Civil Rights Love Story

Is it possible to fall in love through a stack of letters? Bill and Audrey Lawson did. Sit-ins, arrests, and a bold move to start a church and change the landscape of Houston’s Third Ward not only threatened their lives but sealed their legacy in the Civil Rights Movement. The Lawsons is a visual history and musical journey of a time in African American history when courting was respectful, love transcended, faith superseded, and the fight for equality meant putting your life on the line for the greater good of humanity.
